Happy Saturday Night!

Hi again! Hope your Labor Day Weekend is going well and everyone is safe. Thoughts and prayers with those of you affected by Tropical Storm Lee. These past couple of weeks have been rough, so sorry. So today I was able to play in my room most of the day, good thing to do when it's 103 outside! I made this card for 2 Halloween Challenges. I was hoping it would make it feel more fall like, but not so much, still hot out!! lol The first challenge is over at My Creative Time which is for a Cricut-less project using the colors Purple, Orange, Green, and Black and the second challenge is for the Wacky Wednesday Challenge at More Than Favors. I used Recollection cardstock and DCWV pattern paper from one of the new mat stacks. I used my Martha Stewart border punch to make the gate. Now, I can't take credit for this swinging gate idea. I'm sorry I can't remember whose blog I saw it on, but I had to try it.

The sentiment stamp and cat stamp are from a Studio G set that I got at Walmart, and the jewels on the house were included with the stamps. Great deal for only $.97!! I then used a Sakura Glitter Gelly roll pen on the fence to color the webs and give the crows spooky eyes. The cat has Stickles on his eyes. Pretty simple card, but it was fun to make. Hopefully it will start feeling like fall soon. Well, thanks for stopping by, hope your evening goes well.


  1. Love your spooky Halloween card!! The fence is how it opens. That cat look's a little scary with those "green" eyes! Great touch! TFS! Good luck in the challenges!!
